We seem to have an ager issue in America. We argue over politics. We get into fights at grocery stores. There’s road rage. We get angry over everything.
You’ve see the stories all the time. It’s gotten to the point where you are no longer surprised. Conflict resolution specialist Veronica Sites tells KTRH why this is happening.
“When we have unmet expectations,” Sites explained, adding that when those expectations aren’t met, we lash out.
And of course, political debates now turn into arguments. Sites says another factor in why we are so angry today is social media, and how out of hand the arguments can get online.
“We have a voice online, but we have a lack of engagement person to person,” Sites said.
Sites says until we start treating each other with respect, this trend is only going to continue.
